Air-source heat pumps are the best way of keeping US homes cool during extreme heat, while boasting lower costs and carbon emissions, reveals a study by not-for-profit RMI.
Arguing that electrification will increase carbon emissions is misguided, argues Jan Rosenow from the Regulatory Assistance Project. Instead, the focus must be on bringing more renewables online to make electricity production as clean as possible.
Poland may have a reputation as a climate sceptic, but by at least one measure it is building back better than most. Nonetheless, it will need to match EU recovery funds with strong climate policies to really break away from coal.
Heat pumps provide energy-efficient heating and cooling and are one of the most effective technologies available to decarbonise buildings.
Hydrogen has an important role to play in the clean energy transition, but there are better options for decarbonising heating in our homes.
Decarbonising heating is essential to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, but the UK Government is still hesitating about which path to take.
